I remember seeing this trailer for David Cholewa’s “Dead Shadows” ages ago and thinking how wonderfully insane it was. But since that first sighting I didn’t see much else about it – which in my opinion was a damned shame. I’m a fan of French horror and to see a French Lovecraftian film – well, that would just be the bee’s knees.
After watching a very disappointing first game of the World Series, I wasn’t necessarily looking for something to cheer me up but found it anyway.
The fine folks at Shock Till You Drop are reporting that the Spanish-made, Lovecraft-inspired “Valdemar Legacy” (or more accurately “La Herencia De Valdemar”) is being shopped for US distribution by Imagina International Sales.
The fading days of summer have just turned out to be an absolute Tentacle-palooza. First, we had the announcement of the DVD release of the Lovecraftian “Closet Space”, Then there was the blockbuster announcement of Guillermo Del Toro and James Cameron teaming up to do “At the Mountains of Madness”. Now, we have news that October will also see the release of Kaare Andrews’ What-The-Hell-Is-That-In-The-Clouds “Altitude”.
If you’re like me and have lived in Texas for any length of time – or even a state or an area that has lots of country music on the radio – you’ve probably heard David Allan Coe’s “You Never Even Called Me By My Name.” Good chance you heard it before and didn’t even know it. It’s that song with the monologue in the middle about what makes the perfect country and western song (in no particular order: trains, mama, rain, pick-up trucks and getting drunk). Well, for me I could do a little monologue about what makes the perfect horror movie. Sure, you could have blood and gore and boobs and dread and whatnot, but there’s still one thing missing from that formula, one thing that keeps it from being perfect.
